Tour de France 2021: Stage 2 – Matthieu Van der Poel, an emotional win for his Grandad

Tour de France 2021 – Stage 2, Mathieu van der Poel

A phenomenal ride on the Mûr-de-Bretagne for the time bonus on the first pass, followed with an outstanding solo effort to win the stage and take the Yellow Jersey that his grand-father Raymond Poulidor never had in his prestigious career.

Matthieu was beside himself with the emotion and significance of his win, completely understandable and admirable. What a great start to the race by this young man.

Have a great day! 🙂
